The Houston Rockets are getting some wing help, having acquired Iman Shumpert in a three-team trade with the Sacramento Kings and Cleveland Cavaliers, as first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Cavs also send Nik Staukas and Wade Baldwin to the Rockets (both expiring contracts).
The Rockets will send guard Brandon Knight, forward Marquese Chriss and a 2019 lottery protected first-round pick to the Cavaliers, league sources said. They landed one the night before the trade deadline on Thursday at 3 p.m. ET (Friday 4 a.m, Manila time).
Having started 40 games, he was the team's primary perimeter defender. Barnes is shooting an impressive 39 percent from 3-point range. The former North Carolina standout grew up in Houston and has appeared in 120 career National Basketball Association games (44 starts) since the Kings selected him with the No. 15 overall pick in 2017. The Cavaliers are all-in on acquiring assets, now having acquired seven draft picks - in addition to players - in separate trades involving Rodney Hood, Kyle Korver, Sam Dekker, George Hill and Alec Burks. Burks' contract expires this summer.
